Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan on Friday said the quality of polity is going down and "every religion has their own terrorist, we cannot claim that we are sanctimonious." 

"I feel the quality of polity is going down. I don't feel threatened. Every religion has their own terrorist, we cannot claim that we are sanctimonious. History shows that all religions have their extremists," ANI quoted Kamal Haasan as saying after stones were thrown at his rally in Trichy.

Kamal Haasan also urged his fans to maintain decorum and not to be drawn into the violence.

"Dear MNM family and fans, this is an acid test for our decorum and demeanour. Do not listen to their noises and be drawn into their violence," he said in a tweet.
